It has to be a DIY thing. At the very least we clean up our own house first!
More recently, a wedding photographer, violated the copyrights of others, we lynched him.
However, why are we so laxed with pictures posted by photoshoot organisers?
Vince, draft something!
Aiyo, lidat also need to draft meh, I thought common sense:
1. Make sure you get permission from the photographer before using his works. Permission granted by anyone other than the photographer may result in you running the risk of infringement because that other person may or may not have the right to grant permission on the photographers behalf. Do it at your own risk.
2. If the photographer grants permission on the basis that you credit his work, be sure that you identify him. A simple statement such as "Credit to <name>" will do; unless the photographer requires some other format or details to be inserted. Some require email address to be inserted, others require mobile phone etc. The basic idea of a credit is so that people know who did the work, and so that they can contact the photographer if they wish to engage him - credited works are a form of advertisement.
Will this do?
At the end of the day,organisers are just too kan chong to post and advert their shoots without doing the homework to give credits to the rightful owners of the pictures.
I notice a cycle,a repeated trend which starts with model giving organiser 'their' pictures and though the model affirm the organiser that permission has been sough,something goes utterly wrong.Either the model is lying or the photographer forgets he ever gave permission.
Then the photographer finds out his work has been used for personal gains and organiser just give credits.
All just seem too convinient for the organisers.
For intergrity sake,organisers should do their homework and istead of pushing the blame,take take charge like a responsible adult.
Well, thats why we have organisers, and we have Organisers.
Thank you Vince!
